Alexandria’s genesis is an online myth. It claims that a genetic mutation turns some people into “perfect” human beings. This is fiction, but several real medical conditions can cause changes in eye color.
The myth has been traced back to 2005, though it may have been spread earlier. People with the fake condition are said to be able to live to 150 yrs, and they allegedly have:
- purple eyes, with the color present from birth or developing shortly after
- pale skin
- perfectly proportioned bodies
- an absence of body hair
- high levels fertility, but without menstruation in women
- excellent immune systems
- very little bodily waste
Origins of the disorder & Myth: It is alleged that a child was born with Purple Eye and pale skin in England in 1329. She was named Alexandria and she went to give birth to 2 children, both of who lived for more than 100 years.
But the myth of Alexandria’s disorder is said to have originated in Egypt, around 1000 years ago. It is said that there was a mysterious light flashing in the sky, which caused many people with pale skin and purple eyes. They were known as spirit people, who eventually disappeared.
